Leeds based Production Room has supplied several pairs of EVE Audio SC207 Monitors to the Music Production department of The Hull College Group. At Hull, music students have access to 2 recording studios, 2 rehearsal rooms, 6 post production rooms and an audio suite incorporating 22 iMacs.
Hull's Senior Music Technician Mark Hitchin explained: "When looking to replace our tired studio speakers I
was in contact with Production Room to demo various mid to high range monitors. After several different pairs
of monitors, they mentioned that they had just received some new EVE Audio SC207s which were just slightly more
than our budget, but certainly caught my attention when compared against other manufactures.
They instantly give the music clarity, a well dynamically balanced sound, filling out the Low frequency and a smooth crisp High without causing any harsh sounds. The SC207's are well-rounded monitors with the size being suitable for our professional Studios and complement our setup perfectly.
The SC207's offer a fantastic feature with the DSP setup being quick and easy and then disabling the controls to stop students from changing the required setup and giving the mix an inaccurate sound. After a couple of months of use, staff and students are very pleased with the purchase."
Phil Codd – Course leader BA(Hons) Music Production: "The thing that strikes me about the EVEs is their overall rounded quality. No area poked out and the top end has a very smooth roll off that prevents the brittleness that some other monitors have."
Steven Cutler – Music Production Lecturer: "I now use EVE monitors for the teaching of recording, mixing and mastering and I have noticed an improvement in the overall quality of sound as compared with other top brand monitors. The clarity in both the high and low end is outstanding with the ribbon tweeters making a marked difference. The monitors have helped in my lecturing role as students now find it easier and clearer to notice changes in EQ, compression and subtle differences in track dynamics. These changes are much more noticeable with the quality of the EVE monitors. I have also used these monitors for my own professional recording and mixing work and would recommend them to other recording / mixing engineers and to other educational establishments as a top quality reference monitor which stands side by side with some far more expensive alternatives."
Ifrinn Blackden – Student: "The EVE SC207's speakers are a great piece of kit, their well-balanced tine provides an excellent soundscape for production. They're more neutral than others we have, so are ideal for mixing and mastering important projects. They also function equally well at both extremes of dynamics. Plus they can go excessively loud!"
Mike Sheriff – Student: "As far as Studio Monitors go, all of the monitors we use have in Hull College at the
moment do the job. But there's a massive difference in just doing the job and performing to the standard of the
EVE Audio monitors.
These speakers are by far the very best I've ever used. I've had experience with other brands, but these seem pale in comparison to the EVE Audio's. The bottom end is rich, with an almost sublime smoothness that gives real texture to any sounds played through them. They have a punchy midrange with a great dynamic field which gives the user excellent diversity and range of use.
But my favourite feature of the monitors is the ribbon tweeters. They give a clarity and quality to the sound, unheard of when using inferior speakers."
